I liked Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords, but I'll probably wait on more reviews for this one, as I've been often burned by games with good ideas but awful execution.

If you're still looking for the game, I've got a copy I'm willing to let go of. You can PM me for more details.

Damn, gonna be hard to choose between the PS3 and Xbox 360 now, but if the PS3 version of Tales of Vesperia is localized, I will get a PS3.

This is the first time ever I've gone through an RPG's New Game+ over and over to see all the endings; I've gotten the damn Royal Alchemist ending more than the others, though :/

I'd rather they start calling the series Estpolis in America since a) Lufia's only in the first (chronologically second) game, and b) mainstream gamers wouldn't give a shit anyway. As for the game itself, the graphics look good, but I'll wait on reviews.

I don't really see what the big deal with the original Lufia was since to me it was a worse-than-generic RPG.

Lufia II's the only game in the series I liked despite its awful localization and glitched Dual Blade Shrine, though I haven't played the third and fourth ones.

Phantasy Star has been dead to me since IV.
382  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Shining Force or Phantasy Star? on: November 29, 2009, 09:58:26 PM
They're all good. Play 'em all. A shame Sega's a shell of its former self today.
383  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Games you will be getting next year? on: November 29, 2009, 09:57:52 PM
You must have French roots if you give up on a game without beating it (as you did with DQ8).

I'm lukewarmly anticipating Strange Journey since I've been somewhat let down by the Shin Megami Tensei series lately.

Pokemon HeartGold or SoulSilver I'll definitely be getting.

Golden Sun DS as well though the story will probably suck as it did in previous games.

Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep if I ever get a PSP.

I actually have the PC versions of Ys I + II installed on my computer with their respective translation patches, but haven't been motivated to play them at all...

Nocturne in my opinion is decent but not ZOMG PERFECT like fantards make it out to be. The Digital Devil Saga games are a lot better in my opinion, with some of the best voice acting I've ever heard in RPGs. Persona 3 and 4 I like as well, despite my urge to kill whatever genius decided that someone should take the player for a complete idiot during battle. Devil Summoner 1 I liked as well, but its sequel for me had godawful loading times and a way-too-high encounter rate. Devil Survivor let me down as well, basically being escort mission hell and a grindfest towards the end, but I'm lukewarmly anticipating Strange Journey, given the decent reception it's received in Japan (then again, they give good scores to games I thought sucked).
386  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Grandia on: November 29, 2009, 09:50:41 PM
I wouldn't say Grandia is worth it since the PSX port is awful, freezes often (then again my discs were scratched up well), the voice acting is terrible, and the story sucks. The battle system is its only redeeming aspect in my opinion.
387  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Half finished games on: October 27, 2009, 02:19:11 PM
Shadow Dragon was a special case because your units are -supposed- to die.  Which is incredibly stupid, yes, but that's why the game is the way it is.  You can win without anyone dying though, you just have to play carefully.
The fact that enemies constantly respawned made it damn near impossible to play "carefully" as you say. I tried the last battle over and over and over, but still couldn't beat it because of those god-damn ballistas or whatever that kept appearing, and the fact that I couldn't level up at all. But hey, if you like shitty games, that's your business.
388  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Half finished games on: October 27, 2009, 11:50:21 AM
Yeah, Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon became the very, very first RPG I ended up not beating because I found the final battle to be unbeatable since my characters died too easily. I can safely say I'll never touch the series or anything else Intelligent Systems produces in the near future.

Another one I just thought of...Unskippable/Unpauseable Cutscenes. No game should be without the means to both pause and skip it's cutscenes.
Amen to this. By the way it should be "its." Sorry for the nitpick, but a little tip: before using "it's" replace it with "it is" and ask yourself if your sentence makes sense.

Story Elements:
-Character gets temporarily incapacitated for part of the game (I could list a ton of RPGs where this happens)
-Fetch quests that are necessary to advance but add nothing to the main storyline
-Characters are mostly teenagers and/or children

Gameplay Elements:
-Fake difficulty (i.e. a game being "harder" because of cheap mechanics)
-No save points right before bosses
-No pause button/half-assed pause feature
-No equip-best feature

Other Elements:
-Characters shouting out the names of their attacks, and/or doing so with a poorly-translated quote beforehand
